David Weir has warned his Rangers team-mate Alan Hutton that the grass is not always greener in England.
Hutton is reported to be interesting a number of Premier League sides, but Weir believes the Scotland international full-back would be better off staying where he is, at least for the time being.
Weir spent eight years in England with Everton and admits that it is easy for players to be tempted to make the move south to take advantage of the inflated wages and increased media coverage.
However, despite admitting that Hutton has the ability to play at a higher level, Weir is adamant that a club the size of Rangers can cater to the demands of any player and anyone considering leaving should think twice.
"The size of club Rangers is, and the benefits which go with being here, it would have to be a very attractive option for him to leave," the Scotland defender told the Daily Record.
"That's only my opinion, but it's how I see it.
"Alan is a talented lad with all the attributes to play wherever he wants for as long as he wants. Only he knows where he wants that to be.
"The level of performance he's putting in for Rangers week in, week out means he's only going to attract interest, especially as he's been doing it in Europe.
"That will bring speculation but the ball is in Alan's court.
"I just think there are a lot worse places you could spend you career than Rangers.
"You play in front of 50,000 every week and get looked after at Murray Park.
"I have no doubts that he'd do well in England, he has all the attributes, but it's not everybody's cup of tea. It's not everyone who wants to uproot their families and leave their home life."
Hutton also has plenty of time on his side and Weir believes that he could always move on in the future if he still feels like a new challenge.
"Alan is a young man. He could do it in two or three years if he wanted to," he said.
"The grass isn't always greener on the other side and what people expect you to do isn't always the best thing for you. He's been linked with the likes of Man United and they don't get any bigger than that.
"I'm sure it's all very flattering for him and to be fair he's not let it affect his form, which has not dipped at all.
"That's another good sign because I've seen it happen before when they're linked with big moves.
"It seems to be the natural progression, doesn't it? You do well for Rangers and Celtic and people say, 'Right, what's the next challenge?'
"Sometimes though I think, 'why change something if it's working?' But everybody is different and the individual has to make the decision."
